captioning funded by cbs rain is gone. thank goodness. at least here in the city. for the moment. good morning, everybody. i'm harry smith. >> but a lot cooking in the tropics. good morning, everyone. i'm maggie rodriguez. >> another story of this morning, you have heard of this out of texas. this is a brawl that erupted. this is not a college game. this is not a semi pro game. not a high school game. this is a pee wee football game. jeff glor is investigating and have that for you a little bit. we want to start in south florida where a tropical depression pushing through, bringing heavy rain and possible flooding. before it's all over, it could impact much of the east coast. sherry williams of our miami station wfor is in miami beach and has the very latest. good morning.
7:02 am
>> reporter: good morning, harry. south florida getting quite the soaking. i'm wading in water here on miami beach. with the heavy downpours, flooding is a big concern here. the roadway behind me already washed out as drivers have been dealing with that as they come through this area. flooding is a big concern as the downpours continue to hit us, coming through overnight and into the morning hours. the rain picking up on us moments ago. the worst of what we're being told is dealing with this all morning and not going away any time soon as we're expected to continue dealing with the flooding and water collecting and gathering in south florida as the day goes on. harry? >> thank you very much. we want to go to dave price and find out where this storm is headed. good morning, sir. >> you know what? she was right. just beginning to see the storm pick up. not well organized right now but goes over the florida peninsula, south florida, out into the atlantic and where it gets energy. and that rotation is going to be more well formed. the biggest concerns, once it
7:03 am
moves through florida, rolling into the carolinas, places like wilmington already pounded and another three, possibly to eight inches of rain expected as this system begins to zoom on up the coast. and again, it is going to follow a quick path all the way through to the northeast. but the biggest concerns tomorrow, what could be, well, what could become a tropical storm later on today. that would be nicole. we'll watch it and it's a serious rainmaker and concern is flooding. back to you. maggie? >> hurricane season through the end of the november. thank you very much, dave. 7:03. latest on the emergency landing of yet another airliner with landing gear trouble. it happened to a passenger jet last night in milwaukee. a smaller version of the jet that had a near-crash landing at jfk airport on saturday. cbs news correspondent nancy cordes in washington this morning w. the latest. good morning, nancy. >> reporter: good morning. tuesday's emergency landing baerls striking and troubling similarities to last saturday's incident at new york's jfk airport.
7:04 am
sky west airlines flight 3074 from omaha to milwaukee was forced to make an emergency landing tuesday night. the problem -- the plane's left landing gear was stuck. >> you could hear them trying to put the landing gear down about four or five times. >> reporter: 5:10 p.m., the plane with 36 passengers and a crew of 3 landed safely. it was eerily reminiscent of last saturday's dramatic landing at jfk. >> stay down! stay down! >> reporter: flight 4951 carrying 64 people also could not lower part of its landing gear. >> brace for impact. >> reporter: lighting the night sky in shower of sparks as a wing dragged along the tarmac. no one was injured. they're both products of bombardier, a plane with five landing gear malfunctions in past two years. december 15th, 2008. a mesa airlines landed safely at
7:05 am
chicago's o'hare airport. june 11th, 2009, atlantic southeast airlines made an emergency landing in atlanta. and on may 23rd of this year, yet another sky west crj-200 touched down safely in ontario, california. they have released a statement about this latest incident saying, quote, the aircraft has logged more than 27 million flight hours and more than 22 million takeoff and landing cycles so these are very good and reliable aircraft. maggie? >> yet, nancy, you mentioned they have had five similar incidents in two years s. that unusual? >> reporter: it is unusual. i mean, it is not that uncommon for a tire to blow which makes landing a more nerve wracking but for the landing gear to fail altogether, that's much more serious. the planes are computer jets and make short flights, many flights a day and more wear and tear on the landing gear but still, something like this shouldn't happen. >> what about the faa announcing any plans to ground aircraft or
7:06 am
do additional safety inspections in light of this? >> reporter: no word from the faa yet but they'll be taking a look at the problem now that it's happened twice in rapid succession, maggie. >> thank you, nancy. and now here's harry. >> now to president obama back on the campaign trail trying to reignite the fire in young voters who helped him win the white house. but getting them support democrats this year seems to be a bit of a challenge. cbs news chief white house correspondent chip reid is traveling with the president in des moines. good morning, chip. >> reporter: good morning. the president is doing whatever he can to fire up the democratic base before election day. he told "rolling stone" magazine it's irresponsible and inexcu inexcusable for democrats not to go to the polls and at the university of wisconsin he gave a barn burner of a speech. >> what did you say, wisconsin? >> reporter: recalling the glory days on the 2008 campaign trail -- >> hello, wisconsin! >> reporter: -- president obama rallied a raucous crowd of at
7:07 am
least 15,000 people at the university of wisconsin in a speech beamed to more than 100 college campuses nationwide. >> we cannot sit this one out. we can't let the country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future. >> reporter: this is the first in a series of campaign rallies aimed at reigniting enthusiasm among young voter that is propelled the president to victory two years ago but the problem for democrats is that many young voters are far less interested in the midterm elections five weeks away. >> level of enthusiasm as far as this election coming up, i don't think it there's. >> trying to get excitement for other people and not himself an i guess that changes -- >> reporter: makes it harder? >> yeah. >> united states senator russ feingold. >> reporter: other democrats like senator feingold who recently avoided appearing with the president at a campaign event and tuesday night made a surprise stop. >> you heard my president!
7:08 am
you are our president! and i'm thrilled that you are here with all of us badgers. >> reporter: the president returned the favor hoping to give a boost to feingold that not long was favored to win and now trailing in the polls. >> because if everybody who fought for change in 2008 shows up to vote in 2010, we will win. we will win. the polls say the same thing. we will win. >> reporter: today the president changes the focus back to the economy with another backyard event but there are more campaign-style rallies on college campuses scheduled in the weeks to come. back to you. chip reid in des moines, tha thanks. joining us is bob woodward, author of "obama's wars" and live in the studio this morning. this is a book, ostensibly, about afghanistan. as it turns out, it is about pakistan which is in the news
7:09 am
these days because of all the drone attacks. the piece there over the weekend on "60 minutes." this is a war not going away but as it turns out it is so much more about pakistan. >> exactly. i saw that "60 minutes" piece and you see how violent it is in afghanistan.>x@r and, of course, the dirty little secret here that's not a secret is that the safe havens for al qaeda and the taliban are in pakistan. and so they literally are there in pakistan. the taliban insurgents go back for r & r weekend and trucks waved through by pakistani at their check points to go to afghanistan to kill american soldiers. >> the thing that is, i think, so interesting about this book is it puts all the characters in their proper places. and then you see, though, that
7:10 am
these folks are infused with ambition and intelligence and have lots of things at stake and there really is friction among them all trying to get to the same theoretical place. >> it's intense. what i find is that -- and kind of a summation of some of this is so much is unsettled. the president's committed to 30,000 more troops into afghanistan. but in these secret meetings in the situation room and the white house, he repeatedly says, we need a plan to get out. there can be no wriggle room. i'm not going to do ten years. he is out of afghanistan psychologically and the question is, for commander and chief, don't you have to be kind of the guy up there? yes, we can. we'll win. >> of course, when he takes
7:11 am
over, they're already in the war for seven years and what he was not going to do and he said in the book is give the military a blank check and an open-ended deal, say, go do your best. >> yes. he tried to limit it in terms of number of troops and strategy. some people in the military, like general petraeus, felt, well, we have 30,000. we asked for 40,000. the limitation on the mission is not that great. and what we have to do and i mean, this is true at cbs, "washington post," any institution -- >> reality. >> show progress and you'll be given more time. >> one of the criticisms that comes to you when you write these books is that people think you must give truth serum to the people you interview but also that some of the people that come off best are the ones that talk to you the most. how would you respond? >> i talked to nearly everyone in this case, and including the president and the vice president
7:12 am
and secretary of defense have said they talked to me. the key to this in the spine of the book are these notes of nsc meetings, the documentation. so it's not somebody's favored spun recollection. it is exactly what happened. >> the book -- >> and, you know, some people -- there are many -- this is what can make your head hurt. you can look at it like the white house read it. people there. and robert gibbs, the press secretary, essentially embraced the book. said read the whole book. this is a story of a president's struggling. other people have read it and said this is a story of a president who doesn't know exactly where he's going. >> it depends on where you come from and take away from it without question. one of the other great telling things is stanley mcchrystal sort of foretelling of his own downfall and there's lots of
7:13 am
really very interesting and amazing things in there. >> thank you. >> we're out of time. thank you very much for being here in this morning. let's go to the news desk. erica hill is here. good morning. >> good morning. this morning, security officials in several european countries tracking possible terrorist plots with commando-style raids and hostage taking. cbs news xhont macorrespondent phillips with the latest in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's called credible. but they have said that no attack was imminent and with one exception, the terror level has not been raised. the only actual evidence of any increased terror threat is in france where there have been a number of security alerts including the eiffel tower last night. the second threat there in two weeks. the terror threat level raised in france which fears a backlash
7:14 am
from north african militants over attempts to bad the wearing of burqas by muslim women. britain and germany have also been named as possible targets but terror threat levels have not been raised. >> it comes out of the maturity in these style of attacks that pakistan has very sadly been having for a long time. >> reporter: alleged plots said to have been modeled on the attacks of mumbai, india, two years ago in which terrorists of pakistan attacked public places, killing more than 170 people. this recent plot, security sources say, has been foiled by the increased use of unmanned drone strikes on terror cells in pakistan, as well. known leading figures of al qaeda groups reportedly been targeted. there are inconsistencies in this story, particularly in france where security alerts have been prompted by phoned-in bomb threats. normally al qaeda didn't do warnings. one added ingredient in the
7:15 am
story is the arrest in spain of a man suspected of financing al qaeda in north africa. he is a u.s. citizen of algerian origin of debi and spain has been trying to nab him for two years. >> thank you, mark. it is a victory for the obama administration in the stem cell argument. a court ruled the research can continue for now and reverses a judge's order last month to block the research. a decision the justice department is appealing. president jimmy carter spent the night in a cleveland hospital. doctors recommending more observation this morning. mr. carter admitted yesterday after an upset stomach on a flight from atlanta. it's unclear when he'll resume his bookstore. >> actress lindsay lohan back in
7:16 am
rehab. this new photo released showing her on the west hollywood terrace reading a self-help book called "the power of rest" and checked herself into rehab yesterday. lohan must stay there until the next court date of october 22nd. mark your calendar for that one. dave price, switch things up for a little bit, first check of the national weather this morning. >> from one stormy situation to another. there's the radar picture. not very well formed right now but we are seeing a much more compacted storm beginning to work up the coast. right now, it is to the south-southwest of miami moving at 35 miles per hour with winds 35 miles per hour. getting up to 39 and you have a
7:17 am
>> that's a quick look at your weather picture. much of the rest of the country quiet. high heat in the pacific northwest. talk about that in a little while, folks. >> thanks, dave. one husband, four wives and one reality tv show. now the whole family is under investigation after allowing cameras to follow their every move. we'll tell you why.

7:31 am
the host announced the winner but gets word in her here she's announced the wrong winner after the poor girl made her acceptance speech and everything. everyone is mortified. we're talking about that this morning. is it real or a publicity stunts? i hate to be a cynic. >> i wonder. >> we'll look at that ahead. first a new reality tv show about a polygamist family in eutaw is drawing unexpected and unwanted attention. priya david-clemens is in los angeles this morning with the story. good morning, priya. >> the show "sister wives" premiered on tlc sunday and almost immediately after it started the brown family of lehi, utah found they are under investigation for the very lifestyle they allowed reality cameras to fill. . >> i'm a polygamist. but, we're not the polygamists you think you know. >> reporter: the mysterious world of polygamy on full display sunday as the brown family, all 21 of them, starred

7:33 am
life. the hbo series "big love" turned the spotlight back on polygamy, a practice banned by the mormon church in 1980. >> marge and i, we're second-class citizens. >> reporter: in 2008 the issue grabbed headlines with a polygamist compounds run by this convicted sex offender was raided and more than 400 children removed. >> we don't ever promote the lifestyle. this is kind of the thing i would actually say, hey, buddies, don't try this at home. >> the brown family says they are not surprised by the added scrutiny saying when we decided to do the show, we knew there would be risks but for the sake of our family and, most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking. only time and the police investigation will tell how much that risk will cost. and it's rarely prosecuted, but big me is a third degree felony in utah, so after the police are
7:34 am
done with their investigation, the evidence will be forwarded to the district attorney's office for review. maggie. >> seems the evidence is right there on tape. thank you. joining us to talk more about what this could mean for that family our legal analyst, lisa bloom. good morning to you. >> good morning, maggie. >> this seems to be pretty cut and dry. polygamy is illegal and they are flaunting they are polygamists. do you think if it moves forward they will have a hard time proving this is a crime. >> maggie, i don't know what they were thinking doing a reality show with cameras clearly a felony under utah law, a person who knows they have a husband or wife cannot take another spouse or co-habit with someone else on n a marriage-like relationship. here they are saying we have a polygamist lifestyle and all live together, four wives and one husband, clearly in violation of utah law. >> there they are, flaunting it to millions of people kind of
7:35 am
almost taunting authorities to go ahead and move forward with this. what do you think will happen? >> well, we know that prosecutors do rarely prosecute also this there is child abuse or statutory rape in a polygamist marriage. on the other hand, you can't simply flaunt what you're doing and sort of thumb your nose at law enforcement and expect to get away witt. i mean, here is hard cold evidence by way of all of the videotapes of the reality shows. i don't think law enforcement can turn their backs when the evidence is this clear. >> what do they face if they are convicted? >> they face between zero and five years in prison and up to a $50,000 fing. you know, they say this is a risk they thought was worth

7:40 am
teach good sportsmanship. which is why a fight between coaches and parents at a pee wee football game is attracting national attention and outrage. cbs news national correspondent jeff glor has the story. good morning. >> harry, good morning to you. it was supposed to be a fun game for 11 and 12-year-olds in texas 20 miles south of houston and became an adult brawl. now, the kids are paying the price for their parents' mistakes. a fan shooting home video of the pee wee football game captured the ugly scene from the stands. it began just after you see one player for the patriots run for a touchdown. what you don't see out of the camera's view, two players who collided beginning to scuffle. one parent stepped in, followed by many, many more. before long, a wave of angry dads streamed away from the field, pushing, shoving, punching. >> the coaches actually did that in front of us because that's a
7:41 am
bad example for us. >> reporter: the melee included this especially ugly moment. one patriots coach blind-siding a father from the other team, a sucker orders punch to the back of the head even while one of the young players nearby tried to play peacemaker encouraging adults to settle down. obviously he had little success. fans watched stunned. >> shock and waiting, hoping that it's going to end any minute. >> reporter: now, what's inciting even more anger and frustration is a decision by the local football league, which has banned kids from both teams from postseason play. even though it's pretty clear the parents were responsible for elevating a rough tackle between kids into an all-out brawl between adults. >> i don't think it's fair they punished up for what the coaches did. >> parents and players will try to convince the board to change its ruling.
7:42 am
but right now the league has said that ruling is final. harry. >> the kids are being punished. >> right. >> what's happening with the coaches? >> some are being punished, as well. the first one has resigned now banned for life from the league. some of the other coaches have been tossed out for the remainder of the season but authorities are saying right now no criminal charges are going to be filed. even given that sucker-punch you saw, which is -- >> what a story. wow. >> some of the fathers said they just all had dad moments. >> off the charts. jeff glor, thank you very much. do appreciate it. up next, she's australia's meks top model, oh, no, not her. the live tv mistake you won't believe when we come back. my doctor said most calcium supplements...

and all of a sudden producers rip off her sash and grab her tiera saying, oops, story, we need the roses back. something kind of similar happened in australia, not a beauty pageant but "australia's next top model" they announced the winner and turns out they got it wrong. it turned out innocently enough. >> the winner and australia's next top model for 2010 is -- it's you, kelsey. >> reporter: the 19-year-old was crowned the contest winner during the live tv finale last night. but while giving her acceptance speech, host sarah murdoch interrupted with a reality show's worst nightmare. >> i'm so sorry about this, oh, my god. i don't know what to say. this is not -- it was a complete accident, i'm so sorry. it's amanda, i'm so sorry.

can survive in a certain way, whatever your morals may be. >> there's a scene where you all as teenagers are all in that cafe. because you have for real experience with the outside world i know you've done roll-play within school lessons. i wonder if you can say anything els else? >>. >> a moment in your own life where you were comfortably properly? >> comfortably. ever day, unfortunately. i think that that -- i think, again, if you are taking the whole film as a snap tsdzshot of everybody's life that's very much the first time you go into a pub, desperately trying to be grown up but not actually able to do that and i'm constantly doing that. i do all the time.
8:37 am
i'm wearing high heels today, a really bad idea. >> within the film you are in a love triangle. >> yeah. >> have you ever been in a love triangle yourself. >> how boring of me. >> it's time. >> it's time. i don't know. we'll see. >> shall we all look for o some ribbon together? >> her love life seems rock solid, actually, seen with the actor since they met. although she absolutely does not talk about him. >> i've just seen a short film by your real leading man. >> yes. >> how is it working about together again? >> i have no idea who you are talking about, by the way. um, it was -- yeah, it was great. >> but it isn't limited to -- o earlier this month she stopped
8:38 am
traffic in the streets of paris fi filming for chanel. is that the real you? do you feel comfortable, or are you more of a mo-ped. >> great fun, really good fun. how many times can you wear a beige catsuit by chanel. >> did you get to take it home? >> no. >> while no one wears a costume, any better, she seems casual, comfortable in her own skin. she's such a girl's girl and someone that you really want to be friends with. after we did the interview i said to her have you got a free day now and she said, yes, i'm off to o do my washing, laundry you to, so glamorous. >> she really does seem really down to earth. i was watching your piece, amanda and trying to think of my favorite, the ones you
8:39 am
mentioned, i thought of so many and i remembered that little movie she did, "bend it like beckham" where she played soccer -- football. did she mention that. >> i asked her that question, do you sort of kick a ball around? he said it's really funny you ask me that because just the other day she went to the park apparently with a load of men who were friends and they all thought she would be fannic and she said the minute she kicked the ball she missed and screamed and her leg was too high, she said i'm absolutely rubbish at football. so it was obviously camera tickery. >> i love your new hair-do, by the way. >> thank you. congratulations on the baby. >> i'll send you a picture. >> do. >> last week trey turner proposed to his girlfriend, now fiance, kelsey kramer. now you can understand why his hands may have been shaking. unfortunately he was stanning on o the brooklyn bridge with the engagement ring and it was
8:40 am
dropped. luckily, though, a construction engineer working on the bridge proved that ring's best friends. they are joining us along with their hero doug reese. this is a wonderful story. i love sitting here getting to know the three of you this morning, take us back to that moment, trey, why did you pick the brooklyn bridge? there is a story to that, as well. >> first of all, we're from florida and so kelsey loves water and there's lots of bridges in florida. i mean, bridges are really one of her favorite things. she's always, you know, talked about it, she loves the water and we came up here and visited. she's working up here now so she had just moved up here and we visited over the summer and her parents actually used to live up here and one of the things they said, they are like you have to go across the brooklyn bridge and walk across it and so fun, you get to see the city and everything and we had done that, one of our favorite things and really magical and this was kind of just this memory of us together and one of kelsey's favorite things. i talked to her mom before when i bought the ring. she took me out to dinner after
8:41 am
i bought the ring she's like how are you going to do it, all excited. i was like, i want to surprise her and all that and we decided the brooklyn bridge would be the perfect place. >> it's perfect. that in itself is the telling of a great story how you got engaged. so, kelsey there, you are standing on the bridge, trey is getting ready to go off, ready to go on tour, a musician. you are going to have to sa good-bye soon then all of a sudden everything is happening. did you know at the time he was going to propose? >> i had no idea. no, i just thought we were going out for a celebration of him leaving -- not of him leaving -- but, yeah, my birthday. and so, we were walking and he was behind me, it was really busy and crowded and the first thing i xhoo knew i heard his voice and i heard something and i turned around and knew from his face what he dropped after i saw his face but no idea before that at all. >> drew: realized he dropped your engagements ring. >> uh-huh. >> what was the first thing that
8:42 am
went through your head? >> how upset he probably was and what i was going to make him feel better and i had no idea. so -- >> you saved up for a long time. you could actually hear it clinging, i understand as it went through the slots. >> yes. i heard -- i watched it and saw it fall and heard it and immediately dropped to my hands and knees looking to try to find it and just disbelief, you know. and somewhere in there came up with some awesome pick-up line of i just dropped your engagement ring off the brooklyn bridge, will you marry me? >> of course, she said yes. >> absolutely. >> you get smart, the bridge is under construction. you call and doug reese happens to be the man who found the ring. you get a call an engagement ring has been dropped on the bridge. an professional engineer for a couple decades but ever had a call like this, we need you to look for an engagement ring. >> never. this is the first ring mission i've gone on.
8:43 am
>> it was successful. you really wanted it to be successful. >> i did. i did. i really did. i proposed to my wife on top of a mayan pyramid in mexico and it went through my mind if i had dropped that, i would have been devastated and i thought, how they must be feeling at that time. and i really wanted to find that ring for them. so, yeah, we made it our mission to o go out there and find that ring. >> did it take very long? >> no. they were really, really lucky. it's amazing how lucky they were when you think about all the things that had to happen for that ring to be found. but, if they would have lost that ring a month ago, there would have been no shield there. it would be at the bottom of the river. they would have lost it on the manhattan side of the bridge, there was no shield there, either. if they would have lost it a month from now -- there would be so much work going on it would be like finding a needle in a haystack. as luck would have it we went down there within 10, 15 minutes not even in a nook or cranny, right on top of the shield.
8:44 am
>> during the break, a as you held hands i saw you looking at the hand, a really sweet moment. >> yeah. >> before we let you go, you said to me it's not really about the ring. what's the most important thing about all this for you? >> us being engaged. >> we're getting married. as our friends would say, finally. >> took my time. >> no, it's that our -- big changes, i moved away and the fact we are finally getting married and can finally live together and finally start our life. >> it's great. congratulations. >> thank you. >> to both of you. doug, thanks for o being here, as well. keep us posted on the wedding. and don't lose that ring harry. >> what a great story. thanks, guys. making healthy meals for a family can be expensive. we challenged o our "early show" krebtor katie lee to come up with a week's worth of delicious dinners, thereon this for fifth bucks.

she was up to the challenge, of course, and joins us this morning. when you first heard this, $50 for one, two, three, four, five, six, seven family meals, family of four, right, did you think it was really possible. >> you know, i knew it was possible but it was going to take some thought and we are four people, fifty bucks, seven meals it sounds like quite a challenge but with careful planning, it is very doable. when you are putting that much thought into your meals, you are much more likely to make healthy decisions. >> right. not making the jump decision, the spurr of the moment choice as you go through the store. >> or, hey, kids we're late after soccer practice let's go through the drive-through. when you know you have this at home you are much more likely to have something healthy. those fast-food meals average about eight dollars a person. all of ours average about two dollars a person. >> you did everything, four people, seven meals, less than $50. >> yes. isn't that amazing? >> as we go along we'll talk about the planning because this

state budget cuts are crippling my classroom, so i can't believe the sacramento politicians cut a backroom deal that will give our state's wealthiest corporations a new billion dollar tax give-away, a new handout that can only mean larger class sizes and even more teacher layoffs. but passing prop 24 can change all that. prop 24 repeals the unfair corporate give-away and puts our priorities first. vote yes on prop 24, because it's time to give our schools a break, not the big corporations.

good morning, a problem spot is still the poll plaza. some of our coworkers have been coming into work late complaining about how late the backups are. jammed from 980 and if you're using 880, it's slow and go back to 7th street. once you get on the upper deck on ultra slow mode, it is slow all across the upper deck towards the freemont street exit. give yourself plenty of extra time if you're crossing the bay bridge. it was really backed up where we had an accident. that is clear, but still slow from 237. that is your traffic. here's tracy with the forecast. thanks, elizabeth. i had coworkers complaining yesterday about the heat. today, not as hot. looking out towards the bay bridge there, highs expected up to 99 inland cooling off with highs in the lower 80s. ,,,,,,,,
